MARION, IN - Plastic laminate casework and store fixture manufacturer Advanced Cabinet Systems  launched its complete REVIT Families catalog aimed demands of technology in the architectural community.

“This is the direction that the industry is moving,” says Jay Higgins, director of casework at ACS. “We’ve had a tremendous amount of input and feedback from architects all over the U.S. Providing these drawings to them is just a small part of a big movement towards smart building.”


AutoDesk REVIT involves Building Information Modeling software that encompasses both 3D modeling and 2D drafting capabilities to produce intelligent building project models, says Higgins, representing  real physical, working building components.

The building is first built on screen allowing all of the kinks in building mechanical (electrical, HVAC, plumbing, etc.) to be worked out before the first brick is laid. Once built, all REVIT components from the drawing that are placed in the actual building can be tracked over time and easily accessed if needed.
